Although it never crossed over pop, “Trapped” was a fixture on Miami airwaves, a part of that 1985 sweet spot in which Italo disco (Nolan Thomas’ “Yo Little Brother,” Baltimora’s “Tarzan Boy”) and freestyle (Shannon’s “Do You Wanna Get Away?”, any early Lisa Lisa) converged on Madonna. Nevertheless, Colonel Abrams could smile: “Trapped” was massive in the UK, a #3 hit. To learn that he’s dead after being homeless and suffering from diabetes horrifies me. Marvel at the wobbly bass line, what sounds like a synth flute, and the elasticity of Abrams’ Jeffrey Osborne-esque voice.
